The Bristol Channel Cutter certainly is a niche boat with a fiercely loyal following among long-distance cruisers. Cruiser/authors Lin and Larry Pardey, whose boats Seraffyn and Taleisin are also Lyle Hess designs, have always been big proponents of her style. Traditional lines, a long full keel and heavy displacement set her apart from many modern cruising boats.
Solid construction in hull and deck add up to a formidable heavy displacement boat. Despite its modest length (28 feet on deck), the Bristol Channel Cutter has the ability to carry a sizable payload of cruising equipment and provisions.
Very few boats have the pedigree of the Bristol Channel Cutter both historically and as an icon of bluewater cruising.
Located in Makani Kai Marina.
